Cast Iron Cactus (CIC) is a Roots Americana Band from New Orleans, Louisiana. The members are Patrick Cooper on guitar and vocals, Mark Carroll on guitar and vocals and Jorge Santamaria on drums, percussion and vocals.
CIC plays original material as well as covers from their musical heroes (Dave Alvin, Lucinda Williams, Ry Cooder, Willis Alan Ramsey, John Prine, Hank Williams, Sr., Slim Harpo, among others).
The band plays the first Saturday evening of every month at Bourree in New Orleans, and often at Chickie Wah Wah and Carrollton Station in New Orleans, the Old Point Bar in Algiers and Abita Brew Pub in Abita Springs. In April CIC will play at the legendary Red Dragon listening room in Baton Rouge. Check out the dates on the “Come See Me” page on this website!
